Rise of the Dark Realms Discussion
2 days ago
Always love dragons.
I also like running some good ol' necromancy tricks with some hand cycle. I'd consider running Scion of the Ur-Dragon instead, so you can tutor out and load up your graveyard, then drop some stuff like Patriarch's Bidding, Twilight's Call, Rise of the Dark Realms, and a favorite Living Death.
If you like the last idea, run some Ancient Excavation, Jace's Archivist, Collective Defiance, Windfall, Dragon Mage, Incendiary Command, Tolarian Winds, Magus of the Wheel, and Wheel of Fate to fuel that graveyard. And if you are feeling cheeky Traumatize yourself and confuse everybody.
Also, try out some cluestones, keyrunes, obelisks and such to help with that mana ramp. I'd recommend around 8 or so to balance out the pace, unless you wanna fork out for Azusa, Lost but Seeking or Oracle of Mul Daya

Nice deck construction! Giving poeple draw mitigate the pain you then make them feel with the discards hehehe... +1 Also like the Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank combo, infinite, but gives your playmate a chance.
Well, perhaps the additon of a silly Liliana's Reaver might help you bring a bit more pressure, I personaly prefer it to Hypnotic Specter ; it dosn't fly and cost one more, but the fact that it both makes your opponent discard a card and gets you a zombie often makes them loose a creature to avoid it.
Perhaps a Howling Mine would help you here ; you diminish your own lost while taking advantage politically of the gains of others...
Totaly optional, but since you run a lot of basic lands , Drowned Catacomb and Dragonskull Summit could help you fix you many a little. They're not a costly as fecth or shock lands, so thats a option.
Have a great day/night sir.

Thanks for the input Passa. I hadn't really felt I needed Vela the Nightclad because I have plenty of ways to tap creatures and make stuff unblockable. I was considering Chromatic Lantern because I was also considering Quicksilver Fountain. Jace's Archivist is actually an interesting add, especially if I wind up going for Rise of the Dark Realms. Thanks again.

My playgroup does zombie horde magic once in a while and I've incorporated a tiered system (with 3 different colored sleeves marking the tiers). The first tier are easier zombies and gets progressively harder as we make it through the horde deck. Towards the final tier I've included crazier cards like Rise of the Dark Realms which when combo'd with a couple of Plague Wind earlier on can be pretty devastating. You should definitely try that system out!

I was considering cutting one of Rise or Legion, since they're so expensive, but I think Rise of the Dark Realms is actually better than Clone Legion, even though legion technically goes infinite with Dualcaster Mage. I play Rise in my Tasigur deck, and it generally wins every game I play it in due to the high amount of GY based decks in my meta.
Chromatic Lantern simply got moved to the maybeboard because I don't own one and they're over $10. This isn't a deck I'm wanting to slam a bunch of money on quite yet, so that's also the reasoning for Patron Wizard and Glen Elendra Archmage, and to a lesser extent Voidmage Prodigy. I own most cards in the list right now because I have the Inalla precon and pre-owned a lot of the cards here.
I think AEther Adept is probably cuttable. It just doesn't usually do enough. I usually look at it wishing it was a Hero's Downfall or Terminate instead, as games in my meta usually go long and having to recast a card isn't that big of a deal.
Dire Fleet Ravager is simply in there because I was looking for wizards with cool ETB effects, and he was new, so I threw him in. I haven't really gotten to testing him yet, but the more I look at him the more I think "I play this and immediately die to whatever's on the other end of the board" because at 40 life it brings me to 18, and I usually won't have a lot of dudes. So out he goes!
Similarly, Flesh Carver and Ghoulcaller Gisa were me looking for cool sac outlets that also happen to be wizards, like Viscera Seer, since I'm losing my tokens anyway. I already own Ghoulcaller Gisa, and although it is a wizard, it doesn't really benefit from one of our only real tribal synergy, Inalla's trigger, outside of turning a wizard into a zombie. She'll probably be cut. But I'm not so sure about Flesh Carver going away, since he can potentially get huge, and requires two removal spells, in addition to being able to use him multiple times a turn and his synergy with our reanimation effects to make more giant horrors.
Also, what are your thoughts on adding the Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind combos at the end of the description? Should I even bother? And which ones are best?

I'm with multimedia, Rise of the Dark Realms isn't worth keeping. Clone Legion for flavour alone and for that one blowout moment could stay, as long as you know for the most part it will be a total dead drop.
Why aren't you running Chromatic Lantern? Feels like an auto-include for this. I see it in the maybeboard, but it's gotta be in the "OH BABY BOARD" homie. It's so worth running.
Dire Fleet Ravager feels out of place. So does Ghoulcaller Gisa. I get that you're trading the clone for a bunch of zombies and that it's a decent sack outlet, but Wizards aren't big boyz/girlz. They won't generate too many zombs and on top of that, you have to decide on only one. I'd favour Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar over her. COUNTERPOINT! Purphoros, God of the Forge is a good reason to keep spamming zombies, but then you gotta fun Faces of the Past or Fatestitcher for more Gisa untaps.
I hope this helps!

Hey, cutting Wizards is not a good idea they're the reason you're playing Inalla. Cut the two highest casting cost cards: Clone Legion and Rise of the Dark Realms. You don't need Rise you have the Necromancer Wizards for reanimation and Legion is just a bad card, unplayable junk.

''Also known as wedding'' +1 from me
For long games (because of it's high cmc) you might like Rise of the Dark Realms. Lilliana could also make quite a good wife, Liliana, Death Wielder. She works well with Necroskitter and Midnight Banshee, but her ult only affect your graveyard... maybe Liliana Vess?
Have a nice day.
